Synology DS220+ NAS Review and Backup Setup Guide!

In this video, I have a special one for you guys. Some of you may have known about the issue I had a few months ago where I encountered a catastrophic failure of my hard drives docked in an external docking station. I’ve lost a lot of valuable files and it was a total disaster since I don’t have a realtime backup. Today, we’ll prevent that from happening again by using a network-attached storage device also known as a NAS, in the form of the newly released Synology DS220+. In this video, we’ll discuss about what NAS is and I will guide you through the steps on how to set up one as your personal back up system. With that being said, let’s get into it.
